I've used an old, but still current, set called Best Birds. A couple of weekends ago, I was part of a local Stampin' Up Extravaganza and I got to thinking about one of the projects I taught there last year, which was an acetate window card front with an aquarium scene in behind. From that idea came this card for Jaydee's sketch.
The bird, the branch and leaves, and flowers were stamped onto watercolour paper, painted and cut using the matching dies. The bird is layered to give him more depth.
The 'congratulations' and the cross-hatching on the inside are both embossed using copper embossing powder and there's a twist of copper metallic thread in behind the greeting too.
I used the ever-faithful Softly Falling embossing folder for the front.
I like the clean finish of this card. I think it would work well for a baby girl, or an engagement or even a wedding. A useful one for my stash!
